Unfavorable Tag May Keep Child From Getting, On By GAKKY C. MYERS. PH. D. Head Department Parent Education Cleveland College, Western Reserve University In theory, it would seem clesir- abJe to have on each child's school record card all the outstanding unfavorable, as well as favorable, items in his behavior and school work of previous years. Employers attach great value to such records which accumulate during the high school years. But in practice, such notations likely to appear on the child's card, especially those unfavorable in regard to his behavior, seem to place this child to a great disadvantage. Why? Because of the human frailties of the teacher. Prejudices Teacher. Suppose the new teacher of Ned Norcross reads on Ned's card the statement from his last teacher, "a trouble maker," "needs careful watching" or "smart aleck." Immediately this child is. branded unfavorably. Ten chances to one the new teacher is prejudiced against Ned right away. Before a day has passed Ned may be violently rebuked and humiliated right before his classmates. After a few more such experiences Ned Norcross concludes, "What's the use? Everybody has it in for me." And without apparent effort Ned probably re-enforces his reputation for being a problem case. And what is his .experience later as he goes forward from one teacher to another? Provided each new teacher, on recording any such notes on a pupil's record card, were to be build up resistance to the unfavorable suggestion, making up her mind to find or develop a different type of person in this individual, the tag might prove helpful. But this better attitude seems to be almost too much to expect of the average ;eacher. Her human frailties get the better of her. It Is Bud Practice. I have checked on enough such cases to come to the conclusion that .t is a very questionable, if not altogether a bad practice, to tag school children so. Would it not be better to have on the child's card some statements indicating--if such were the case-low in his home, school or commun- ty life, he has had to face certain handicaps on account of which he needs more encouragements in hia efforts to improve; on account of which, moreover, contacts with his arents should aid the new teacher :o bring out the best in him? Then et tl-^re also be concrete items of assets in this child which promise good investment of sympathy, insight and understanding. If there is [earning lag. the child's specific learning difficulties might well be jointed out, rather than that he be tagged stupidly as lazy or indifferent. Whatever is on a pupil's record :ard, let it be only such as is likely o be dealt with objectively and rea_ onably, and not something to in- lame another teacher's emotions against him from the outset. H E L P I N G T H E H O M E M A K E R By MRS. MARY MORTON. Menu Hint. BREAKFAST Orange or Tomato Juice German Kuchen Butter Coffee Milk DINNER Broiled Steak French Fried Potatoes Spring Salad Butterscotch Pie Coffee This butterscotch pie recipe is urported to be the favorite of Hariet Milliard, young radio singer and icture player. I would suggest that efore mixing the flour with the su- ar, the sugar be browned or cara- lelized. Today's Recipes. German Kuehen--One-half cup su- ar, one-half cup lard, one-half cup our, one-half cup mashed potatoes, ne cup potato water, one-half cake east in one-fourth cup lukewarm ater, one-half teaspoon salt, one grg, three or four cups flour. Mix II ingredients, using enough, flour o make a dough that can be mixed nth a spoon. Let rise. When light, ut into baking pans deep enough o that the dough comes half way p the sides of the pan and let rise gain, but not to the top of pans, pread with melted butter. Sprinkle -ith half a cup brown sugar and alf a teaspoon cinnamon moistened nth milk. Bake about 30 minutes n moderate oven. Makes two kuch- ns. Butterscotch Pie -- Two cups rown sugar, four tablespoons our, two cups cold water, two ta- lespoons .butter, four eggs. Mix su- ar and flour, add beaten yolks and len water, then butter and one tea- xon vanilla flavoring'. Cook in ouble boiler until 'thick. Bake a ood crust in a deep pie tin. When one, pour in mixture. Beat up ·hites of eggs and add four level ablespoons of sugar; put on pie and ake until a light brown in a slow ven. A variation of this is to put sliced ananas into the mixture when it is ut in the pie crust and just before le meringue is brown. Broiled Mackerel With Roe--Buy the canned mackerel, and the fresh oe. Wash the roe and remove loose lembrane, trying not to break the- usters. Pour boiling water over the oe and let it stand while you remove the mackerel from the can; remove backbone and lay the pieces neatly in a baking pan and put the drained roe, one on each piece, lightly salting the roe only and putting a bit of butter on each; place under the broiler with not too high a flame. The roe (not the mackerel) should be turned with a spatula and wet with a teaspoon of cream. Turn the flame higher the last five minutes to brown the roe lightly. Sponge Cake with Custard and Marmalade--Slice the cake not too thin, pour cold boiled custard flavored with a blend of lemon, vanilla and almond in equal parts over it, and top with a spoon of orange marmalade. ^ .*,_. MAKKIAOE LICENSES ISSUED TO COUPLES NEW HAMPTON--Clarence W. Mechler and Lois Couradi, both of Titonka; Clarence Odean Nelson and Ruby Shelden. both of Oskosh, Wis.; Wilmer A.
